Scorpion pose is an interesting experience for me. Often, practicing this pose is more a practice of checking my ego than it is a practice of physical asana.

I have a very flexible spine, so it is easy for me to simply “dump” into this pose and set my feet right on top of my head. When I do this it looks pretty cool, but it also forces my core to disengage. Once my core has disengaged I lose control and I flip over every time. 

Sure, I could snap a photo at the last moment before I fall and show you all how wonderful I look in a “perfect” scorpion pose. However, that’s not what #maytheforcebewithyogis is all about.

It’s not about looking good, it’s about feeling good. It’s about working with what you’ve got at your disposal TODAY. It’s about being vulnerable and sharing your successes and failures with your peers. It’s about cherishing your imperfections and letting others glimpse the “real” you. 

Here is the “real” me. Here is my “real” scorpion. It is not perfect and neither am I, but that’s what makes me awesome…and that’s what makes you awesome too. ❤ (at The St. Regis Princeville Resort)
